Britney Spears
will NOT be a judge on "X Factor" next season -- and it's entirely her doing ... TMZ has learned.
 
We have unimpeachable sources who tell us Britney loves the show but wants to focus on her music ... which she is doing right now.  Britney is in the studio recording her 8th album, with some help from Will.i.am and producer Hit-Boy, the brains behind Kanye and Jay-Z's "N****s in Paris."

One of our sources tells us ... "Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music."

We're told after she completes the album, Britney is seriously considering going on tour again.

Walking away from $15 mil ...Yeah, she's that rich.

I AM SOOOO GLAD SHE IS GONE.....I wish I could get paid 15 Mill to tell someone they are amazzzing and I am proud of you 20 million times! GOD! She was sooooo terrible on this show...I was SOO embarrassed for her! ALSOOOOOOOO if you make that much money, you would think that she would get her nails done, atleast for air time...her nails were all chewed up and dirty...I gagged everytime! GOODBYE Britney, your career is done and has been for a while, YOU CANT EVEN SING!!! Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I never could figure out why they would choose someone who is so talentless. Yes she sells her music thanks to alot of luck and auto tune. She NEVER sings only lip syncs so how can she judge real talent? Geez! Lol!

This was the first season I watched The X Factor and man that show is crap! I was curious to see how Britney would do. Thank gosh she's off as a judge! She gave crappy advise and voted off her best talent first. She needs to stick to what she does best and that is lip syncing songs that she pays others to write for her! Yeah yeah ... I know she "co-writes" some of her songs as well (whatever that means). Probably something like changing "is" to "was" because I do not believe she is smart enough to come up with her own complete thought! Kudos for giving judging a try Britt Britt, but please stick to your talent of lip syncing!

Might be interesting to see/hear if Britney can come out with something other than poptart/dance synthesized music. I agree that the will.i.am song previewed on X Factor was not that good and she seemed stiff. I wish her well and hope her people continue to keep her in good health.

Brittany can't sing and has to get almost naked with crude dancing to get any attention. Skank tramp!

The real story this crazy skank was not offered a new contract. She had nothing to quit from. I never watch the show and never will.

She wants to go from judging crappy music to actually making it herself.

Thanks be to the Gods! I'm sure there are worse choices (like Lovato) to judge someones talent but none come to mind. I always liked Xfactor best until I was subjected to the idiotic comments and looks of judges with less talent than those being judged. Her 1 and only constipated expression will NOT be missed.

Yeah!! And in industry when the board warns one of it's own he's aboiut to be fired publically...he issues a statement saying he's sorry, he loves everyone there an the job was a wonderful experience but " other career opportunities" have come along and he's going to move on. It's calling saving face.

Not surprised at all. Most people that go into the arts do so because they get bored easy and don't like doing the same thing too long. I'm sure she had fun, got a fat paycheck and prob had some good times.
